New Hotel - 2009
Hotel Missoni is a new hotel built on the site of the former
Lothian Regional Council Headquarters, built in 1968 and
demolished less than 40 years later.
The new hotel faces onto George IV Bridge, and extends from the
Lawnmarket to Victoria Terrace, the high-level walk above
Hotel Missoni, and Pizza Express beneath it, at street level
on the corner of George IV Bridge and Victoria Street, were being
fitted out and appeared to be almost ready to open when I took
the photo at the top of this page on June 16, 2009.
